We have also been very consistent but blessed also as his breeder had him in a kennel and he transformed to our house in a kennel pen same as he was in with zero difficulty.

    As for the leash we put it on 'every time' we take him out (basically every 2 hrs) throughout the day. He doesn't like it much, lots of times sits down and refuses to move, pulls the other way etc, I've tried VERY hard to NOT pull him on the leash and make him regret it or learn to bite it. Now I put a slight tightness to it, wait for him to loosen it and click and treat as per his clicker training. They talk about the same training for loose leash walking so I'm kinda starting it in house/yard and then will continue on the sidewalk during walks. Basically I will set the path and there is no other option but to listen to what I want.

    I have tried to remain calm although sometimes it is hard, I then tell myself, Ok, I have all day let's do this, he comes around quickly. <lol>

    Funny thing is we go through 2 doors as well so my process is :

    - Sit
    - Put on his leash
    - Convince him to come to the door
    - I open the door
    - Request a sit and Stay
    - I walk through and command to come
    - proceed to next door with convincing across the sunroom <lol>
    - Command a Sit and Stay
    - I walk through and command a come
    - do his business outside (this also takes convincing to follow the leash and go in a certain spot etc and allow me to put it in the garbage after I pick it up
    - Getting back to the door to go in is "Easy..."
    - Command Sit/Stay
    - I enter request to come
    - next door
    - Command Sit/Stay
    - Enter and request to come
    - Command sit
    - Remove the leash

    (Wow - I just realized how anal I am with taking him outside consistently <lol>)

    Our day is typically :

    7am - Wake up, and straight outside to pee
    7:15 - 7:30 - Breakfast and straight outside till he poops
    -- Cuddle and Play until we leave for work
    8:30 - In his Kennel as we are off to work and kids head to school
    11am - Daughter is home from school and lets him out to pee (poop if needed)
    12pm - Dinner and straight outside for a poop
    1pm - Kennel as we head back to work and kids back to school
    3:30pm - Kids let him out of kennel and outside for pee
    5 - We are home from work, Cuddle and play time
    6 - Supper for the humans then supper for Kain
    6:15 - Outside for after supper pee / poop
    Evening ritual - Clicker Training, Walk (If this weather ever warms up), fetch etc, Cuddling and watching tv.
    9:30 - 10pm - In his kennel for the night until 7:30am the next day.

    So far blessed with NO accidents in his kennel or around the house, too good to be true so we are enforcing the above schedule like glue.
    thanks
